, former gingrich campaign adviser, he was auto member of the speaker's office. two men that know how to cut a deal, know the battles that are being fought and weighed. i have to ask both of you off the top, i'll start with you, mr. frost, because year here. are you surprised by the lack of urgency regarding the fiscal cliff, that mitch mcconnell saying i haven't heard from democrats since thanksgiving, that president obama is not even calling up the speaker, speaker boehner is not calling up president obama wishing him a merry christmas. are you surprised about the lack of urgency on this issue? >> the answer is yes, but the politics are so difficult. i think what everybody ought to look like right now is what is going to happen on january 4th. that's the day after people are sworn in. if they don't make a deal, is this leadership going to tell members of congress, you can't leave down? are they going to cancel airplanes, not let them go to trade shows in las vegas, that's a very interesting question because normally members take off between the swearing in date of the 3rd and the in

gingrich. >> that, of course, was the best actual political theater of 2012, tony award winner john lithgow's reading of the press release, i think it was. but let's do the best political theater of 2012, and we'll now start with alex wagner again, because she is demanding. >> it is a contractual obligation. it was the best, because i couldn't believe it was happening in mid-august. mitt romney took to the white board to explain what he was doing with medicare. which, in and of itself was a hoax, but the notion that this man would have this horribly stage-managed moment in an effort to show he was all about business. he cemented every narrative out there. >> i don't know if the mice can pick it up, but the drinks are being spilled there over at that table. krystal ball, the best political theater. >> well, i also have a newt gingrich moment when he turned questions about him asking his former wife for an open marriage, parlayed into a debate moment, a huge applause moment. and then parlayed that into an actual victory in the south carolina primary. that was an incredible moment. >> do we ha

. david was an aide to white house newt gingrich and senior adviser to gingrich's 2012 presidential campaign. good afternoon toeth bo of you. >> good afternoon. >> if congress can't come up with a bipart plan, senator reid said he will put to work the president's plan for tax cuts for those earning less than $250,000 a year and renew unemployment benefits. is that outcome a vote on the president's smaller deal? is that a victory for the president and democrats? >> here's the problem. >> you don't know whether that can pass the house and the spooker said yes, he would bring it up, but the problem in the house is that the issue of sikh sequestration because if i understand correctly what the republicans are saying is that they will not waive sequestration unless they're offsetting budget cuts and that's $112 million and i don't know whether that could pass the house. i think it would have a chance of passing the senate. i hope they can negotiate something and i think that's the best outcome here and they ought to meet in the middle some place and raise the limit to $500,000 before you
? they got over 906 bills signed into law. how about speaker newt gingrich's congress. 333 bills signed into law. your congress has just 219 bills signed into law. >> the american people are sick of it. joining me now is clarence page, columnist for the chicago tribune. thank you both for being here. >> i'm glad to be here. thanks for having me. >> ryan, this "huffington post" story got a lot of coverage. >> it's as dysfunctional as anything we had in the modern era. it's great that amanda ran the traps on that. what she found is dozens of these bills managed simply renamed federal bills or post offices. so, in some ways, their accomplishments are even overstated. so, you know, it's just -- it's just been an awful two years from congress and the american people's opinion of it is right. i think it has an eight or nine or ten percent approval rating and that's probably generous. >> gallup says they're 68% on if fiscal cliff, but clarence page, you covered congress. you covered the hill in washington for some time better than -- >> long time, yeah. >> better than most that i've known. hav
and a lot cheaper. we won't play quiz show, john, but the person who said that was newt gingrich. he said it recently. and he said it because a lot of conservatives also are really concerned about this, not as a political partisan issue, but -- as a societal question about what happens. you had not only i president george w. bush weigh in the most fundamental way but you had other allies from the republican party. who are they? >> sure. i -- i -- actually, i -- perhaps the most notable would be senator orrin hatch from utah and -- who is a nonpolitician but spiritual godmother carly simon who is perhaps one of my biggest public advocates while i was away and every day made this her personal crusade in order to garner me support to show people that, you know what, he -- he can be as good as his promise is, if given the second chance. and peopleing to note to that. it wasn't about, you know, all of the efforts that happen order the outside. i think it was also a reflection of what i was attempting to do while i was inside, whether it was -- you know, teaching myself an instrument or teachin
place, he would have been ecstatic to step aside. too bad he never told newt gingrich that. joining me now, msnbc's joy reed. i'm on the verge of feeling sorry for them, trying to come up with these crazy reasons about why he lost. and now they want to pretend that this guy who lived his whole life in order to run for president didn't really want to run for president. >> yeah, i know, lawrence. there is nothing more failing than failing to win something and say, i didn't want to win, anyway. who wants that. the problem with that, of course, is the history. we know that mitt romney didn't want to be president so badly he tried to do it twice. we know that no one that lived in massachusetts in 1994 believes that had he beaten ted kennedy that mitt romney wouldn't have been a candidate for president in the year 2000. he then ran for president two times and ran scorched earth campaigns against not the general election, his primary opponent. as you said, ask newt gingrich. ask the guys who ran against him in the '08 primary, giuliani, ron paul and the others, if this guy didn't want to be p
the teleprompter. newt gingrich. he said the republican party right now could not beat hillary clinton in 2016, but we're hearing the beginnings of the efforts to discredit her as a potential candidate. newt gingrich weighing in on hillary clinton. what about that one? >> is this going to come at the end of his second term with a moon colony? you know. newt gingrich coming to hillary clinton's defense, i suppose we shouldn't be surprised. i'm still going to have a head-wrenching moment because wasn't he the guy who had something to do with impeachment? it's nice that he's gone back to his olympian position of musing on the state of politics. he couldn't really predict his own politics in his own primary very well. it's true that people might try and throw rocks at her. i just think stepping out of the washington fray means that she doesn't need to deal with this right now. so in terms of her own position, it's not like she's a nominee. she has to deal with congress. she doesn't even -- she managed to dodge the whole situation on benghazi pretty well for herself. you know, the tougher questions
like newt gingrich who says the epa, get rid of the epa. these are job creators, regulators, how do you confront republicans like newt gingrich who put that out there by saying i don't think that should exist. >> you know, moms across the country are speaking up right now saying we need stronger stands for soot. the results were overwhelming. we did a proposed rule to deal with greenhouse gases from new power plant. we got three million comments largely in favor. so i think it's easy to say, think right now the american people rightfully want their government to be efficient. they don't want it to waste money. they want to know that they're getting something when you have a regulatory agency, we should regulate smartly. we shouldn't be oppressive. we should be smart about it but we shouldn't go away. >> how do you attract businesses and private money and investment in private investment and the environment. >> i've been doing this almost 23 years we need certainty. we want to invest our money, but we want to know the rules aren't going to challenge. if carbon's the bag thing, that i'm n
's field. guys like my dad do not campbell on candidates like michele bachmann or newt gingrich. guys like my dad who compare to joseph stalin or adolf hitter and guys like my dad don't cozy up to texas governors who brag about seceding from the union or call social security unconstitutional. crazy didn't win, joe, but it also pulled down the nominee. >> the nominee wasn't willing to stand up to crazy. >> early on. >> there were so many times he could have turned, mike barnicle, to michele bachmann, let's say. who said something outrageous. wait a second. i'm a conservative. are you kidding me? to herman cain -- >> sarah palin. >> and all of these 0 other things that were going on, crazy never wins. but we learned another thing. you'd better stand up to crazy if you want to win in bucks coun county, pennsylvania, win in the i-4 corridor, if you want to win in the suburbs, if you want to win in the places where elections are actually won. >> well, i would ask you, john heilemann, as a key observer of the electoral scene, was not the die cast for mitt romney and perhaps, you know, the rest o
there was that moment -- newt gingrich and robert dole are all saying yes, this was a great president. i think now, too, we're looking at ronald reagan, those of us who are democrats or liberal, and able to look back at him and say the same thing. so somewhere in the middle come an awareness of what makes a strong president. >> and the first person who unld that was ronald reagan. we talked about a rendezvous with destiny, a time for choosing, his speech in 1964 that launched his national career, was rife with fdr phraseology. >> from his acceptance speech. yeah. and he was for him originally. >> absolutely. >> let's go to john meacham, who's going to select four presidents that he's written about. brought to you by his -- >> i am -- no, no, no. i'm for good hair presidents. >> oh, good. >> andrew jackson. >> big hair. >> i believe -- my test was existential crises. i think andrew jackson was president at a time when popular democracy could have gone one way or the other and also really good hair. i think president -- fdr is a natural, not such good hair. but i also think that john kennedy, when you sa
the newt gingrich press release which was amazing. they'll study it on "inside the actor's studio" for years to come. you read it better than he could have done and that's saying a lot. >> thank you. i'm proud. i am proud of that moment. i think i had some dramatic flourishes that i will -- >> right. standing the tortured metaphor, one last time. you don't need to look in to a chrrystal ball. "the cycle" loved one person above all, so here "the cycle's" person of the year is jennifer granholm. >> in ohio! 150,000 jobs! and in the great state of michigan! 211,000 good-paying, american jobs! all across america! manufacturing is rebounding! why? excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our f
. >> the only thing we can do here is play ne gingrich. we have to play the skewed media. four out of five fumbles were republican? i guess they were. >> that's just deflection. you don't want to deal with the truth here. >> busboys should not be allowed to have video cameras when way they are waiting tables. who took that? >> it was somebody in the kitchen. >> the first spot is great and how perfect could it end if mitt romney ended up getting 47% of the vote. >> exactly right. >> that was perfect. but he didn't want to be president anyway. >> and if you believe that, i gotten years of your life back for you. >> and a million dollars later he tells me that. >> well, we are are going to do this again tomorrow, but we are going to talk about the five top political viral videos of the year. tweet your suggests to @outfrontcnn. tomorrow night we will have the top five political viral videos of the year. >>> "outfront" next the help sandy victims need but aren't getting from the u.s. senate. >>> it has been two months since hurricane sandy hit the northeast. but the relief bill is still stall
to name some -- and newt gingrich's press release and any number of comments from him. >> but there's more. let's take a look at what i'm going to call the most monumental piece of found that didn't make it into that montage. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> i didn't want to disappoint. >> we've got to see that. i'm not sure and i wonder what jimmy would say about this, i don't know if that's the moment when the election was lost. i think when romney said self-deport and offended millions of hispanics and losing that community for good, that is the moment that it was truly lost. after that the ship had already sailed. we were in garbage time and didn't realize it. >> jimmy, let's not forget the war on women which was all in our heads, we had todd akin, rush limbaugh's comment on sandra fluke. >> t
like michele bachmann or newt gingrich. guys like my dad tune out politicians who compare opponents to joseph stalin or adolf hitler. and guys like my dad don't cozy up to texas governor who is brag about seceding from the union or call social security unconstitutional." crazy didn't win, joe, but it also pulled down nominee, i believe. >> because the nominee wasn't willing to stand up to crazy. >> early on. >> and there was so -- early on. there were so many times, he could have just turned, mike barnicle, to michele bachmann, let's say, who said something outrageous and go, wait a second, i'm a conservative, are you kidding me? or to herman cain, or you know, when sarah palin was riding around, calling barack obama a socialist, bordering on a communist. and all these other things that were going on. crazy never wins, but we learned another thing. you better stand up to crazy, if you want to win in bucks county, pennsylvania. if you want to win in the i-4 corridor. if you want to win in the sub b suburbs of columbus, ohio. if you want to win in the election, in the places where el
. the president and ceo of a polling company and former senior advisor to gingrich 2012 campaign, coming in from new york, david, the former deputy staff secretary to president clinton and cnbc contributor. david, i will start with you, only because i was reading through the notes last night. you said we are dealing with domestic terrorists. that's how you describe the republican party right now. >> i'll tell you, you caught me in a grouchy mood. today, i'm thinking they're like wylie coyote running over the cliff and keeps his feet running before he realizes the laws of gravity apply to him and drag us us to his death. my example goes to this. our polling friend here can tell us the majority of americans really do blame the republicans in the house for taking us over the cliff, if that's where we go. that's what all the polling shows. it's not as if the republican party at large is helping itself here. individual members at the house in safe districts might fear being primaried from the right. but the party as a whole will suffer from this. it's self-destructive, like somebody blowing themselve
like to keep it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and give romney a good ol' smack? >> harry truman in his great reelection campaign that gallup quit taking polls in mid september went after duey and the crowd would yell out "give 'em hell, harry" and he would yell back, "no, i just give them the truth and it hurts like hell." i think governor romney has done so many things that are indefensible in a republican primary -- it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it would be indefensible. all i have to do is tell the truth, i'm not going to go negative. all have i to do is point out facts. i think the next few weeks will a lot of fun. my only request of mitt is that he be honest with the country. >> america clearly needs someone with a good business brain. the economy remains in the tank. you went after mitt romney today about his work at bain capital, you called him a greedy wall street so and so. was that the most sensible position, calling him a vulture? i mean, should you be on that side of the coin, given that you're a successf
things worked, right? >> absolutely not, gregg. president clinton and newt gingrich, the then speaker, despite their very real differences were talking all the time. i think at one point they spent a total of almost 35 hours in total together. bottom line, there was always a sense of national purpose that i think is missing here, gregg. bottom line on both side i think there's a lot to be accounted for. gregg: you know, terry, let me put up on the board what this means to the average american. all right. 300 bucks if you're the lowest taxpayer, there you are but you're talking about if you make 40 to 50,000, $1700. go to the next page. look at this. i mean you're talking about folks who make, you could be in new york a firefighter and a teacher and you're making within that range of 200 to 500,000. you're talking about 13,000, $14,000 in increased taxes. there is the last page. 500,000, $34,000. do you think people really appreciate what's about to happen to them? >> i think they appreciate that the american political system is talking all about raising taxes and not nearly enough abo
refused to release his tax returns allowing newt gingrich to take south carolina. >> we proved here in south carolina that people of power beats big money. >> reporter: but that big money eventually cleared the field and romney set his sights on the president. >> it's still about the economy and we're not stupid. >> reporter: at number nine, bain. not that one. that one. almost as soon as romney had had locked up the nomination, his former private investment capital was crashed by the super pac and obama campaign. the attack ads put romney on defense for months. the president also got a lip fr lift from the supreme court. romney vowed to strike it down himself. >> i'm not one that's going to get rid of obama care. >> reporter: at number seven, gas. >> governor romney, do you feel that your gas has overshadowed your foreign trips? >> reporter: or in romney's case, his entire foreign trip where a campaign aide lashed out at reporters. a gaffe that went global. and then at number sick, the conventions were remembered less for the nominees and their running plates and more for -- >> wha
